BEST KETO CHEESECAKE RECIPE

You might wonder if cheesecake is allowed on the Keto diet and the answer is yes, with just a few adjustments. Traditional cheesecake usually has graham crackers for the crust and a sweet filling. 

Using a low-carb sweetener like monk fruit sweetener for the filling instead of regular sugar and your favorite Keto cereal for the cheesecake crust makes it easy. Even our non-Keto friends had no idea it wasn’t regular cheesecake. It tastes like the real thing.

No water bath needed, no springform pan. Simple, easily cut into individual slices, and a low-carb cheesecake to satisfy that sweet tooth on the Ketogenic diet.

HOW TO MAKE KETO CHEESECAKE

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a square or round 9″ pan with cooking spray.

  2. For the Crust: In a food processor, pulse the cereal until it’s fine crumbs. Add the melted butter until combined. Press firmly into prepared pan and bake for 5 minutes. Cool while preparing the filling.

  3. In a large bowl of stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and erythritol until fluffy. Add the sour cream, eggs, vanilla, and liquid Stevia and beat until smooth.

  4. Pour cheesecake filling on top of the crust and bake cheesecake for 30-35 minutes or until center of cheesecake is set. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before chilling for 4 hours. Serve with cream and berries.

WHY DID MY CHEESECAKE CRACK?

The reason cheesecakes crack is for a few reasons. It can be that the cheesecake is baked at too high of a temperature. Usually when a cheesecake cracks it is because there was a big change in temperature quickly.

The main way to avoid this is to let the cheesecake cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge to cool.

TIPS:

  • For best results, use room temperature ingredients.
  • Brighten up the flavor by adding a few tablespoons of lemon juice.

TOPPINGS:

We like to top this with whipped cream sweetened with powdered Swerve and low-carb berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
